Biography

The story of Biffy Clyro is as romantic as it is archetypal. Three childhood friends from Ayrshire formed a band, delivered three albums of abrasive youthful exuberance and finally cracked the big time when their fourth – 2007’s Puzzle – hit the charts at #2. By the time the promotion of their fifth album Only Revolutions had ceased, they were bona fide stars who could ... Read more in Amazon's Biffy Clyro Store

Previous Biffy fans bemoan this LP in a really harsh way. I wasn't a Biffy fan before this album. It sits very nicely with my Idlewild and Hell Is For Heroes records... Only, maybe even better. Good quality from start to finish. Check it out unless you're an old fan of Biffy Clyro, then it seems that you should avoid, apparently!

I thought I was getting too old for this but when I nicked this album from my sons bedroom it blew me away!!!
Biffy Clyro really rock and this album grows and grows,and its not one dimensional.
Check out the sensitive "As Dust Dances",a beautifully building ballad reminiscent of Nada Surf at their best.
Its all very accessible with loads of great hooks and choruses (Whos got a match?...like The Proclaimers being backed by the Offspring???)
Folding Stars is the most immediate track,but there is a lot more depth on this record.I pick up hints of The Psychedelic Furs and Midnight Oil
in parts,and even some Rezillo,s style guitar,which cant be bad.
The writing and playing is really top notch,this album deserves a repeated listen

I have previous Biffy Clyro albums and agree they are excellent, I also agree with the people that state this is vastly different. Reading the reviews of this album shows that Biffy have polarised peoples opinions.

I think that peoples main problem is that they have become popular, they get played on the radio a lot and are not this little underground cult band anymore, there are some dodgy songs on this album but every album has one or two ("folding stars" comes to mind). It is also a little softer than I would have personally hoped for but it is also as catchy as herpes, the lyrics at certain points are weak but at other times are amazing.

The start of "Living is a problem..." is slightly comical but its also unexpected (and we wouldn't want a band to keep churning our the expected) and the song feels so good when it explodes it feels so so good. "Machines" is incredibly moving with incredibly touching lyrics, especially if you have been through a similar experience to Simon Neill. "Who's got a Match?" is a pure pop song, but oh what a pop song.

This album has a lot to offer to people new to Biffy Clyro, fans of the indie genre, fans of rock music, fans of metal (who have a softer inside) but you do need to come into it with an open mind. The big problem for the Biffy fans who hate it is they are trying something new, but wouldn't life be boring if everyone always did the same thing.

Epic.

If you can find another word to describe this album tell me.

Written about his mother, Elanore (sp?), the album tells us about his feelings as a result of bereavement. Denial (Living is a problem), Anger (Who's got a match?), Reflection (A whole child ago), Isolation (The conversation is...), And helplessness (Machines).

The first song, Living is a problem... is the best intro to an album bar none. Full of energy, emotion and feeling, it really makes you think "Hell, now THIS is a band!"

A much more deeply rooted album that deals with an everday topic, Biffy Clyro have struck gold with Puzzle, entering at number two behind Rhianna in the UK album chart, they deserve all the success they get.

It is November, 2004 - about a month since 'Infinity Land' was released - and it is still in my cd player/car stereo/mp3. I must have listened to it at least 50 times already. Like the previous album 'Vertigo Of Bliss' it took a few listens to REALLY appreciate - but once you did, whooa, what an album.

Fast-forward to August 2007 - and, painfully, I must admit that the same cannot be said of their eagerly-anticipated fourth album, 'Puzzle'. It seems I am not alone in predicting this album would 'happen' at some point. After all, the group had said they were after a 'pop' album - relinquishing the 'screaming' from previous work - in favour of sheening production.

le Biff have always maintained that they try to do something "different" with each album - and in that sense - it cannot be argued that 'Puzzle' is different from all their other albums. That does not mean that it is better - quite the opposite in my view.

BUT - let's put things in perspective - this IS a good album - if you give this album 1 star then surely you must hate it & Biffy that much then what's the point of you being here? But 1 star? For goodness' sake people, this is still Biffy Clyro, not Bucks Fizz or Bananarama. It is a good album - but compared with previous Biffy albums - it is unquestionably their worst, for me. I hesitate to say least 'experimental' because technically, it is experimental - they have never made such a pop-oriented, clean-sounding album - and this is unfortunately where the Biffsters fall flat on their face, and end up sounding like they've run out of ideas for the magic pot of ingredients. Unless of course they just wanted to get a 'pop' album out of their system - only to return to 'Infinity Land' ways in the near future?!: Discuss.

Many people have already said what I am trying to articulate here, but to be honest - this is more for me, I want to understand why I don't like this album.
Wait a minute... I DO like this album... it's actually quite good, it is well rounded and there are no terrible tracks. Many are very enjoyable.

I think it was best put by those who speak of this album's instant likeabilty, compared to the previous albums taking a while to appreciate.
I have owned the first three for a long time now, and despite much listening, on occasion I am STILL finding myself suddenly going "what the hell?! since when was that song SO amazing - how did I miss this before??".
Whereas I bought "Puzzle" on the first day and listened to it several times during the day, and since then my opinions and feelings about the songs have barely changed. I feel there is just not that much depth - especially compared to the older albums, which (for me) showed progressively more depth each release.
Many people have cited this as a return to "Blackened Sky" in terms of being a more simple pop record. I would argue it goes FURTHER backwards to previously uncharted (by Biffy) realms of simple and ordinary. For, although it may appear simple pop on first glance, there is something - the seeds of later albums' madness - going on with "Blackened Sky". People seem upset by the lyrics on "Puzzle", but come on - look at the lyrics on "Blackened Sky", some of them are sooooooo sentimental that they border on cheese BUT it is ok because the first three albums have a certain dark edge (my friend says they make him feel "uneasy"!) which has been completely abandoned along with the wonderful experimentation that basically along with the wonderful vocals made up the unique appeal of Biffy Clyro.
